Back by popular demand, the CWC has invited playwright, theater educator, and accomplished director, Josh Patterson, to lead us through the nuances that lead to effective playwriting. We are excited to announce that this year's 3-part workshop will include a showing of the world premiere of national sensation Kareem Fahmy's A Distinct Society at Pioneer Theatre in SLC, followed by a private Q&A with the playwright and more! Join us to unearth how plays function in the realm of creative writing, the intricacies of writing for multiple voices, how to approach editing and rewriting, and what steps to take in order to get your play from script to stage.

Cost: $40. Registration is required.
Location: CWC, 210 East 400 South #8
